PARADISE CITY - Guns N' Roses
Tabbed by: Vinny

Now you'll have to find out by yourself what rhythm do you want to play,for example in
the intro bit you can only strum the chords once...but if you are playing by yourself
like on an acoustic then it may not sound all that impressive...so what i do is is play
the chords, 
 G C in (D D UDUDUDUD DD) each and then
 F (D D) C (D D) G (D D UDUD) 
adding a lil' dead notes before switching to the next chord,and i swear the rythm
changes every time I play.
So figure out the pattern you'll enjoy struming for this song!

Rhythm A :-
Rhythm for the parts before the verses and in the verses...
G5 -(DDUD) -Strike Damp Notes- F5 -(UDU) C5 -(D) A#5 -(D) x3
C5- (DUDUDDUD)
C5-A#5-G-F
Intro: Play G (Open) slide your strumming finger/pick from the low E string to the
higher e..going through one string at a time
then play G (Bare) C F C G x 2 times

Play the chorous part with the into rythem


[Chorus]

G (Open)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C 
Where the grass is green
 C 
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G (Open)
Oh, won't you please take me home
G(Bare)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C 
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G
Oh, won't you please take me home


Play: (Since no singing is requierd here you can strum the chords once)

   v   ^ v ^ v   ^ v ^ v v v

[Verse]

G5                      F5        C5
Just an urchin livin' under the street
A#5  G5                  F5  C5 A#5  
I'm a hard case that's tough to beat
    G5
I'm your charity case
   F5             C5     A#5
So buy me somethin' to eat
G5               F5      C5     (Strum a bit on C5 with frequent dampning)   
I'll pay you at another time
C5             A#5        G5-F5 
Take it to the end of the line

(Play Rhythm A)

G5
Rags to riches
F5          C5
Or so they say
    A#5
You gotta
G5                    F5  C5     A#5  
Keep pushin' for the fortune and fame
G5
You know it's, it's all a gamble
F5        C5     A#5 
When it's just a game
G5           F5           C5    (Strum a bit on C5 with frequent dampning)   
You treat it like a capitol crime
C5   A#5          G5   F5  
Everybody' doin' their time


[Chorus]

G (Open)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C 
Where the grass is green
C
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G (Open)
Oh, won't you please take me home
G(Bare)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C

Oh, won't you please take me home

(Play Rhythm A)

G5                    F5          C5    A#5 
Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber
G5                    F5    C5    A#5
Why I'm here, I can't quite remember
G5                             F5        C5 A#5    
The surgoen general say's it's hazardous to breathe
G5
I'd have another cigarette
F5          C5    (Strum a bit on C5 with frequent dampning)
But I can't see
C5           A#5    G5    F5    
Tell me that you're gonna believe


[Chorus]

G (Open)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C 
Where the grass is green
C 
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G (Open)
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down to the paradise city
            C 
Where the grass is green
  C 
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G
Oh, won't you please take me home


[Bridge]

D5     C5 
So far away 
D5     C5
So far away 
D5     C5
So far away 
D5     C5  A#5
So far away 


[Verse]

G5                       F5  C5
Capitain America's been torn apart
A#5 G5
Now he's a court jester
F5     C5     A#5
With a broken heart
G5
He said turn me around
    F5      C5          A#5  
And take me back to the start
 G5                 F5
I must be losing my mind
         C5       (Strum a bit on C5 with frequent dampning)
"Are you blind?!"
     C5      A#5   G5     F5
I've seen it all a mllion times

G (Open)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C

Oh, won't you please take me home
